In Captain Phillips we saw a bit of the story of men caught up in Somali pirate rings, and now Fishing Without Nets offers a much deeper exploration of the lives of men who take up criminal activities on the seas. Cutter Hodierne began to tell this story with a 2012 short that took the Jury Prize for shorts at Sundance. This is his feature expansion of the story, which follows a troubled father who struggles to keep his family fed, leading him into piracy. See the Fishing Without Nets trailer below.
